Ramsi's has a diverse menu. This was the first time my wife and I have eaten here; we were only in Louisville for the day. The kosta burger (lamb) was excellent and the fermented tea drink was especially interesting! The decor is very eclectic, very nice. Good service. This is definitely a restaurant to check out when you are in... More

Visiting Louisville looking for lunch we stumbled on Ramsi's after consulting TA. We were surprised to find a garden table and a Sunday Brunch. The combo lunch and breakfast buffet was excellent. Many excellent and diverse choices. An additional bonus was a desert table. Though not homemade were good. The service was excellent and the Greeter was perfect, helpful, and... More

Love this place! The food is genuinely excellent- really delicious, fresh and healthy. Huge range of choices including for those with allergies. Nice outside seating area, complete with heaters so you can enjoy it even on a cooler night. Our server was helpful and courteous. Definitely put this top of your list for dinner in Louisville.

I used to go to this restaurant all the time when I was in college. I came through the area and went there for old time sake. I ordered my regular "Empress Chicken" and it was still as amazing as I remembered! They have expanded but still has the little neighborhood feel to it. I recommend going if you get... More

Hands down one of my favorite places it eat in the entire country. I'm a vegetarian and they always have things I can't get anywhere else. Today I had a Bayou Burger and it was amazing. Cocktails with neat twists are also always on point.

It's been awhile since we visited this restaurant since we probably came here too often. We thought today would be a good day to have Sunday brunch there. Granted it's over $40 apiece for the both of us but here is a lot to chose from plus we love the atmosphere and the Highlands area. Service was very good and... More

Ramsi's Cafe came highly recommended to us, and it did not disappoint. The food is delicious! The menu is varied, but it definitely has a little middle eastern flair. Save room for the chocolate creme brule'! Outstanding!

A short Uber ride from our B&B in Old Louisville, this restaurant was a hit. It had a wide variety of choices, including a large vegan menu, for dinner. The food was great, especially the Egyptian Kitchen .

Very interesting concept, kinda quirky from the inside, something different, cozy. The food was good to very good (one part of the rib was really fall of the bone, the other end was bone dry; the tuna tartar had to much mustard sauce in it, killed the tuna taste; the dessert was very, very rich). vegan options! The waiters were... More

Wide variety, reasonably priced, attentive service. Good choice for Sunday brunch. Home made desserts too.
